i don't know if this was answered or not but i was wondering why in the episode - Strong Stuff This Insurance why mrs. slocombe was asking why the men were behind the screen when clearly she must have seen their underwear hanging in front of them and why didn't they change back into their clothes after the exam was over?

That weirdo nurse probably hid their clothes somewhere and it took a while to find them.

Well the exam never got started technically. The doctor never came back in. Slocombe and Brahms got there before they did.

I always assumed the exam took place after the shenanigans, but it's a legitimate question!

The exam took place after the shenanigans, as Red said. We don't see that part. When they assemble outside YMG's office they've been examined. So we hear the hilarious results.

There would, of course, have been time for them to get dressed again, but presumably the writers thought the robes were funnier. They probably are, now that I think about it.

I took it as the women got their exam but when the women walked in on the men, the men just got their clothes taken away so the men didn't get looked at yet.

The men got undressed in the doctor's room, therefore when the ladies walked in, they, the ladies, hadn't been examined.

Plus Mrs Slocombe doesn't talk about her examination until the scene outside YMG's office.
